Ying said the Sino-Australia bilateral cooperation has been ever deepening since China and Australia established diplomatic relations 45 years ago. China has now become Australia’s biggest trading partner and its important market of exports and source of imports.

Shanghai is willing to broaden cooperation with Western Australia in trade, energy, mineral products, education, and cultural industries, Ying added.

Shanghai welcomes companies and scientific research institutes in Western Australia to come to Shanghai and support development of its technology and innovation center. Meanwhile, Shanghai will support its companies to develop and invest in Western Australia.

McGowan said Shanghai is a beautiful city, and the trading partnership between Shanghai and Western Australia is strong, especially the trading in iron ore. He expressed his hope for extending the cooperation in tourism and education. He said Western Australia will work hard to create a better experience for Chinese tourists and exchange students.

Graeme Meehan, Australia’s consul-general in Shanghai, also attended the meeting.
